Beyoncé Knowles is one busy woman. The superstar singer began her week in Houston, with a sold-out concert at the Toyota Center Monday night that her fans are still talking about. While in her hometown, she did some shopping at Target, dined at Pappasito's, and posted photos on her Tumblr page of the red swing at the Menil Park, a Whataburger sign, the Obama mural near The Breakfast Klub and the University of St. Thomas mansion.

On her Instagram page she posted backstage photos with husband Jay Z (he has dropped the hyphen in his name, according to news reports this week) and Bun B.

Following concerts in Chicago on Wednesday and St. Paul on Thursday, she and her husband appeared at a rally in New York Saturday to protest the verdict in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin before she jetted to Detroit for a sold-out concert in nearby Auburn Hills, Mich., Saturday night.

The New York rally drew an estimated 2,000 protesters, including MSNBC's Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton. It was one of 100 rallies held across the nation, including Houston, on Saturday as part of the Justice for Trayvon National Day of Action, following the acquittal of Martin's killer, George Zimmerman.

"Jay Z and Beyoncé said they didn't want to speak and they didn't come for a photo op," Sharpton said, according to a report in People magazine. "Jay Z told me, 'I'm a father. Beyoncé is a mother.' We all feel the pain and apprehension – the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn't protect anybody ... We do not come from hate, we come from love of children."
